Meet Jay...

Are you ready to start your therapy journey with someone authentic and genuine?

Hi!  I am Jay Janicki (they/them), a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Pennsylvania.  Ever since I was a kiddo, I knew I was put on this earth to help others. I grew up with both parents being chronically ill and I had to learn at a very young age how to advocate for others, how to hold space for others’ emotions, and how to be a sounding board in the face of adversity. Becoming a therapist is truly one of the best gifts I could’ve ever been given.

What I bring to therapy:

I interact with clients in a very human way. I model that it is okay to show excitement, that it is okay to model sadness. It is okay to be silly and have that back and forth banter. It is okay to share these same emotions in a safe space. Clients have appreciated self-disclosure and the “reactive” part of me, and I always ask permission before I tap into either of those. From my clients’ perspective, most see me as validating, flexible, and malleable when it comes to certain treatment methods I bring into sessions. My clients will always know that I care deeply for them.

 

Background:

I graduated from Arcadia University with my MA in Counseling.  Since then, I have gained experiencing from working in all levels of care from inpatient settings to private practice.  From once a "baby therapist" to a proficient therapist, I bring a wealth of expertise and a track record of success in helping clients navigate their mental health journeys
